Colonial San Sebastian By Van

Nestled in the heart of the Sierra Madre Mountains, San Sebastian's remote location and historic appeal have made it one of Mexico's last great getaways. Even though this little mountain enclave (elevation 4,500 feet) is not very far from Puerto Vallarta, this former mining town is a world away from typical resorts and ordinary tourist attractions. Your land expedition begins with a 90 minute drive by air-conditioned van from Puerto Vallarta to the 17th century mining town of San Sebastian. As the road weaves through the mountains, you'll enjoy fantastic scenery and scenes of rural Mexican life, making the journey both breathtaking and relaxing.


Enjoy a typical lunch before your walk through town. Enjoy your stroll through this very peaceful town, which has changed so little in hundreds of years. Come across a quaint cobblestone plaza lined by dignified white buildings, a classic Porfirian bandstand, an 18th century church dedicated to San Sebastián and many old world Haciendas. San Sebastián is a living museum untouched by time, and an experience that is difficult to surpass.


Note: Participants must be at least 6 years of age. Wear comfortable shoes, clothing, insect repellent, sunscreen and bring a light sweater and cash. This tour is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties. The vans used for this tour do not have storage space for wheelchairs or walkers.
